SEASON THE BRAKES BRAKE BURNISH PROCEDURE Models: Camaro SS Coupe, Camaro V6 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package, Camaro V8 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package, Camaro ZL1 Coupe and Camaro ZL1 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package 1. Apply the brakes 25 times, starting at 60 mph (100 km/h) to 30 mph (50 km/h) while decelerating at 0.4 g. This is a medium brake application. Drive for at least 0.6 mi (1 km) between applying the brakes.

2. Repeatedly apply the brakes from 60 mph (100 km/h) to 15 mph (25 km/h) while decelerating at 0.8 g.

This is a hard brake application, without activating the Antilock Brake System (ABS). Drive for at least 0.6 mi (1 km) between stops. Repeat until the brake pedal travel starts to increase. Depending on conditions, this should take no longer than 25 brake applications. 3. Cool down: Drive at 60 mph (100 km/h) for approximately 6 mi (10 km) without using the brakes. 4. Apply the brakes 25 times from 60 mph (100 km/h) to 30 mph (50 km/h) while decelerating at 0.4 g. This is a medium brake application. Drive for at least 0.6 mi (1 km) between applications.

Please note: During the burnishing procedure, the brake pads will smoke and produce an odor. The braking force and pedal travel may increase. After the procedure is complete, the brake pads may appear white at the rotor contact. CONTINUED

2018 CAMARO MODELS TRACK PREPARATION REPLACE THE TIRE DEFLECTOR AND FRONT DISC BRAKE SPLASH SHIELD Model: Camaro SS Coupe only Before any racing event, remove the tire deflectors in the front of the vehicle and replace the original control arm deflector and front disc brake splash shield with the tall deflector and small splash shield (found in the trunk).

Racetrack driving with the original front disc brake splash shield and front tire deflector may result in brake pedal fade due to high rotor temperatures. For full details on how to install the tall deflector and small splash shield, see the Camaro Owner’s Manual (pages 206-208). 3. ADJUST THE FOUR CORNERS AND VEHICLE COMPONENTS TIRE PRESSURE AND WHEEL ALIGNMENT Tire pressure specifications are listed in psi (kPa).

2018 CAMARO MODELS TRACK PREPARATION 4. CHECK YOUR FLUIDS Models: Camaro SS Coupe, Camaro V6 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package, Camaro V8 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package, Camaro ZL1 Coupe and Camaro ZL1 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package Be sure to follow all service procedures before driving your Camaro on the track or competitively. FLUID/LUBRICANT TO DO WHEN Engine Oil (OW-40 or 5W-40 that meets the dexos2TM specification.

If this oil is not available, you can use Valvoline® SynPowerTM MST 5W-40 or Mobil 1® 15-W-50 engine oil) Engine Oil - ZL1 1LE only (Mobil 1 15-W-50) Check the oil level and keep it at or near the upper mark that shows the proper operating range on the engine oil dipstick.

Often (before, during and after every track event or competitive driving session) Please note: If you use the vehicle for racing or other competitive driving, the engine may use more oil than it would with normal use. Low oil levels can damage the engine. Be sure to check the oil level often during racing or other competitive driving and keep the level at or near the upper mark that shows the proper operating range on the engine oil dipstick. Automatic Transmission Fluid – Camaro ZL1 only (DEXRON® ULV Automatic Transmission Fluid) Change after track usage. Every 15 hours DOT-4 Brake Fluid For track events or competitive driving, it is recommended that the brake fluid be replaced with a high-performance brake fluid that has a dry boiling point greater than 279° C (543° F).

After conversion to the high-performance brake fluid, follow the brake fluid service recommendations outlined by the fluid manufacturer. Do not use silicone or DOT-5 brake fluids.

Before every track event or competitive driving session Please note: Chevrolet recommends the use of TOP TIERTM Detergent Gasoline to keep the engine cleaner and reduce engine deposits. Visit www.toptiergas.com for a list of TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline marketers. Use premium unleaded gasoline meeting ASTM specification D4814 with a posted octane rating of 93. If unavailable, unleaded gasoline with a posted octane rating of 91 may be used but with reduced performance and fuel economy. CONTINUED

2018 CAMARO MODELS TRACK PREPARATION 5. ADJUST THE SUSPENSION Models: Camaro ZL1 equipped with the 1LE Performance Package.

ADJUSTABLE FRONT STRUTS The front strut top mount of Camaro ZL1 with the 1LE Performance Package can be positioned two ways. The original setting is in the street position, but it can be turned 180° to the track position for additional negative camber on the front. Rotating the front strut top mount will yield a change in front camber of approximately 1.7°. To adjust the position: 1. Raise the vehicle so the tires are slightly off the ground. 2. From the bottom side of the strut top mount, remove the Allen bolt that secures the top mount alignment pin to the top mount. 3. Remove the three strut mount bolts and the alignment pin.

4. Using the Hex feature on the top of the mount, turn the top mount 180° until the TRACK CAMBER text is visible and the second set of top mount holes aligns with the strut tower holes. 5. Reinstall the top mount bolts and torque to 21.4 lb.-ft. (29 N•m). 6. Keep the top mount alignment pin and bolt for reinstallation when the struts are returned to the street position following the track event. 7. Verify and adjust the vehicle alignment specifications to optimize vehicle performance for the track event. 8. Verify and readjust the vehicle alignment as needed following the track event. STRUT SPRING SEAT ADJUSTMENT The front struts of Camaro ZL1 with the 1LE Performance Package have a threaded spring seat that allows adjustment of the preload on the front springs.

The vehicle corner weights and front trim height can be adjusted. The spring seat can be adjusted approximately 0.4 inches (10 mm) up or down from the nominal position. Each complete turn of the spring perch will change the vehicle height approximately 0.06 inches (1.4 mm).

Please note: Do not allow the spring seat to contact the black dust boot when adjusting in the maximum upward direction. To adjust the lower spring seat: 1. Raise the vehicle so the tires are completely off the ground. 2. Loosen the lower spring seat bolt. Do not completely remove the bolt. 3. Turn the spring perch upward to increase spring preload, or downward to decrease spring preload. 4. Torque the spring seat bolt to 7.4 lb-ft (10 N•m). 5. Verify and adjust the vehicle alignment as needed following the spring seat adjustment. ADJUSTABLE REAR STABILIZER BAR The rear stabilizer bar ends on ZL1 1LE have three attachment positions that allow the rear roll stiffness of the vehicle to be adjusted.

The stabilizer bar stiffness increases approximately 15% using the rearward holes or decreases approximately 10% using the forward holes.

To adjust attachment position: 1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle. 2. Remove the stabilizer bar link nut while holding the ball stud end. 3. Reposition the stabilizer bar link stud to the desired hole and tighten to 32 lb.-ft. (43 N•m). Use the same hole position for both sides of the vehicle. CONTINUED

This softens the rear stabilizer bar and moves the roll stiffness distribution forward. Move end link one position rearward in the vehicle. This stiffens the rear stabilizer bar and moves the roll stiffness distribution rearward.

Additional Notes: Due to the corner entry stability of the vehicle, the rear stabilizer bar is not a significant tuning adjustment to adjust the corner entry attitude of the vehicle.

The rear stabilizer bar is very effective in tuning the mid-corner and corner exit behavior of the vehicle. Generally, this is the first tuning change to use in trying to correct the mid- corner and corner exit attitude of the vehicle. FRONT RIDE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT Raise the front ride height. This raises the front kinematic roll center and works to stiffen the front roll resistance, which, in effect, moves the roll stiffness distribution forward.

Lower the front ride height. This lowers the front kinematic roll center and works to soften the front roll resistance, which, in effect, moves the roll stiffness distribution rearward. Raise the front ride height. This raises the front kinematic roll center and works to stiffen the front roll resistance resistance, which, in effect, moves the roll stiffness distribution forward. Lower the front ride height. This lowers the front kinematic roll center and works to soften the front roll resistance, resistance, which, in effect, moves the roll stiffness distribution rearward.

Raise the front ride height.

This raises the front kinematic roll center and works to stiffen the front roll resistance, resistance, which, in effect, moves the roll stiffness distribution forward. Lower the front ride height. This lowers the front kinematic roll center and works to soften the front roll resistance, resistance, which, in effect, moves the roll stiffness distribution rearward. Additional Notes: If adjusting the rear stabilizer bar has not provided enough vehicle handling balance change, a front ride height change is an effective way to further adjust the vehicle. This adjustment has very fine resolution and is a great method to make fine tuning changes.

This adjustment can have a very large effect on the corner exit behavior of the vehicle. If following a rear stabilizer bar adjustment further modification is needed, look at changing the front static ride height. TIRE PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT Adjust tire pressures so that the front pressure is 2 psi higher than the rear pressure. Adjust tire pressures so that the rear pressure is 2 psi higher than the front pressure. Adjust tire pressures so that the front pressure is 2 psi higher than the rear pressure. Adjust tire pressures so that the rear pressure is 2 psi higher than the front pressure. Adjust tire pressures so that the front pressure is 2 psi higher than the rear pressure.

Adjust tire pressures so that the rear pressure is 2 psi higher than the front pressure. Additional Notes: Hot target tire pressures for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R are 32-35 psi. This provides the peak performance of the tire. It is best to try and make your tire pressure adjustments fall within this window if possible. Generally, all 4 tires should be at the same pressure, but can be adjusted in 1 to 2 psi increments to adjust the handling balance.

CAMBER ADJUSTMENT Reduce front negative static camber, + 0.25°; or increase rear negative static camber, - 0.25°. Increase front negative static camber, - 0.25°; or reduce rear negative static camber, + 0.25°. Reduce front negative static camber, + 0.25°; or increase rear negative static camber, - 0.25°. Increase front negative static camber, -0.25°; or reduce rear negative static camber, +0.25°. Reduce front negative static camber, + 0.25°; or increase rear negative static camber, - 0.25°. Increase front negative static camber, - 0.25°; or reduce rear negative static camber, + 0.25°. Additional Notes: Target track alignment camber angles are -2.7° front camber and -2.0° rear camber.

These were developed to provide the most even usage of front and rear tires and maximum grip during track driving. It is suggested to start with adjusting the front camber first as there is greater range and resolution in the front camber adjustment.

TOE SETTINGS Increase front toe setting; adjust by +0.05° toe-in per side. Reduce front toe setting; adjust by -0.05° toe-out per side. Increase rear toe setting; adjust by +0.05° toe-in per side. Reduce rear toe setting; adjust by -0.05° toe-out per side. Increase rear toe setting; adjust by +0.05° toe-in per side. Reduce rear toe setting; adjust by -0.05° toe-out per side. Additional Notes: Toe settings are best done prior to an event or where access to alignment tools are available. The target toe settings are +0.05° toe-in, per side, on both the front and rear. Toe-in is best for straight line stability and it’s advisable to avoid too much toe-out in the front or rear axle.

Use this adjustment as one of the final adjustments in trying to reach the handling balance that you desire.
